      I’ve also been baking as much of my own bread as I can as well as

      hamburger and hot dog buns. I’ve been a little afraid to do it

      entirely on my own so I have been “cheating” a little bit by letting my

      bread maker make the dough for me and then baking it in the oven. So

      far everything has turned out great. I go to a Mennonite bulk store to

      load up on all kinds of flour and spices very inexpensively so I feel

      like I’m saving money on bread items. The only problem is that it all

      tastes so great that I’m afraid that I’ve started to gain weight.
